KJ's First Warning Forecast

It's a beautiful day with a little less humidity! In addition, a cool east wind will bring some relief this afternoon as temperatures warm into the lower 90s. Sunshine will prevail today, yet we must account for a stray shower this afternoon.

No major worries in the rain department until this weekend. Expect the best chances for showers and thunderstorms late Friday and again this weekend. Scattered storms will be possible both Saturday and Sunday afternoon otherwise partly sunny and muggy.

For now - enjoy this break from the oppressive heat and humidity combination. A gradual uptick in humidity will make the low/mid 90s later this week and weekend feel more like 100 to 105.

Today: Mostly Sunny. Highs near 90. Winds: E 5-10

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the low 70s. Winds: E 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny. Highs in the upper 80s. Winds: E 5-10
